Berkeley County seniors learn more about substance abuse

The West Virginia Attorney General’s Office is holding public events throughout the Eastern Panhandle to educate residents on how they can better improve their environment.
On Tuesday morning, locals at the Berkeley County Senior Center got a chance to hear from Elizabeth Grant, Assistant from the Attorney General’s Office. 
During her presentation she touched on three main topics including the rise in West Virginia’s opioid deaths and ways seniors can identify signs related to drug use.
Grant also pointed out how vital it is for seniors to pay attention to their prescription drugs and dispose of them if they are not in-use.
The next event will be held May 12 in Hardy County.
